Idaho's Governor Signs "Fetal Pain" Abortion Ban into Law
Reuters: Idaho governor signs abortion ban after 20 weeks, by Laura Zuckerman:
Idaho's governor said on Thursday he signed into law a measure banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, making Idaho the third state to enact such a late term abortion prohibition. . . .
The bill, which easily cleared the Republican-dominated Idaho legislature earlier this month, is linked to controversial medical research suggesting the unborn feel pain starting at 20 weeks of fetal development. . . .
